The city of Denver in the United States has experienced a sudden drop in temperatures. In barely 36 hours, it went from 32°C to -1°C. The snow damaged trees and power lines.

From summer to winter in a few hours. Denver and the Colorado region in the United States experienced a sharp drop in temperatures and a drastic change in weather. In 36 hours, the thermometer went from 32°C to – 1°C. Full sun gave way to snowfall. About 30 cm of fresh snow fell.

These sudden snowfalls led to the fall of trees and power lines. The trees – heavier because they have their leaves – fell on parked vehicles causing sometimes significant damage. More than 66,000 customers were without power on Saturday morning, according to the company Xcel Energy, says The Denver Channel. No injuries were reported.

I had the rough assignment of hanging out in Estes Park for the past two days.

This here is a ~36hr before/after photo.

The snow is not only stunning, but direly welcomed!

Drought, especially in this region, has been such a challenge for us! #cowx pic.twitter.com/G7A04gpUGt
